Owner description: Our perfume museum, which opened in 1983, occupies a charming Napoleon III town house built in 1860 by Lesoufaché, a student of Garnier. The decoration is entirely of that period. Here you can discover a wonderful collection of perfumery objects that will take you traveling through the ages. We will be delighted to welcome you for a free guided tour of this prestigious museum just a few steps from the Opéra Garnier. Open from monday to saturday from 9 am to 6 pm Open on sunday and holydays from 9 am to 5 pm

This is a very small museum (no more than 30mins unless you are super interested in perfume making) but it is FREE . The old perfume bottles are beautiful and the logos , adverts etc are fun. Obviously they are keen for you to buy something at the end when you walk out through the shop but there is absolutely no pressure put on you . There are group guided tours but I am not sure if there are any in English but you are free to wander round without a guide

Sure the museum tour is a sales stunt. And, it's a good one. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the history, artifacts and learning how perfume is made. The interactive scent test was fun. Perhaps we liked it because we scored 100%.

It's not a heavy-hitting attraction, but was a light half-hour after an intense time at the Louvre.

And, yes, I bought perfume. I wanted something meaningful from Paris and this appealed to the romantic girl in me.

Prior to planning for this trip, i never would have even imagined such a thing as a perfume museum but this place was nice (and free). The "tour" ends in their boutique. Their products are reasonably priced and who would pass up the opportunity to buy "genuine' french perfume?

some interesting stuff - but mainly a sales pitch to buy their expensive scent and soaps etc - which is jolly good - but not what I was expecting in a museum. I wouldn't recommend this unless you have some spare time on your hands and are in the area.
